Solar Panels and Wind Turbine Guidance

If you live in a flat, planning permission is required for the installation of solar panels and wind turbines if they would materially affect the external appearance of the building.

The installation of solar panels and wind turbines on single family dwellinghouses can sometimes benefit from being permitted development, and as such planning permission by the Council will not be required.

The Planning Portal has a great deal of information relating to the installation of solar panels on domestic land and on non-domestic land, and the installation of wind turbines.
